Traditional red wine vinification at a controlled temperature between 23° and 25° C. First of all the grapes are separated from the stems and then crushed. The resulting juice and the skins are left into steel tanks for 6 – 8 days for the fermentation in order to obtain as much colour and flavours as possible (these are extracted from the skins). Fermentation is controlled at 23-25°C. After the fermentation the wine is pressed, stored in steel tanks and afterwards it is treated and decanted. This process takes minimum 2 months.
Located in the Veneto region 30 km north-east of Venice, Botter was founded in 1928 by Carlo Botter. Over the years the company has developed from a local into an international export business while still being run by the Botter family. It is currently dealing with companies in over forty countries world-wide, from Scandinavia to South America. Although the company is primarily involved in bottling wine produced on various estates in the Veneto and in the other well-known Italian wine regions, the Botter family continues to make wines from its own vineyards: La di Motte estate in Veneto and Friuli . The family is deeply involved in making high quality wines with the help of skilled wine makers.
Veneto vineyards cover 90,000 hectares (3rd) of which registered DOC plots total 35,400 hectares (2nd). Annual wine production of 8,500,000 hectolitres (3rd) includes 20% or 1,700,000 hectolitres DOC (1st), of which about 55% is white. Venice's region is Italy's leader in the production and commerce of classified wine. A major share of the DOC (which represents about 225 million bottles a year) consists of the Verona trio of Soave, Bardolino and Valpolicella. The plains northeast of Venice take in the Piave DOC zone, where Merlot and Cabernet dominate an expanding range of trendy varietals, though the local red Raboso and white Verduzzo still attract admirers. Treviso's province takes in the hills northwest of Venice between the towns of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene, noted for the popular Prosecco, a dry to lightly sweet white, usually bubbly. In red wines, Merlot and Cabernet Franc have been the workhorse varieties of the central and eastern Veneto for decades.
